As with many other health issues, there’s lots of conflicting information on this. While we do know that the amount of fat in your stomach is much higher than your waistline, we can’t really say for sure whether twisting burns it or not.
The theory that we eat more when we’re in a state of burning fat (i.e. when we’re starving), is in line with the theory that twisting your belly muscles burns fat. This has been found by scientists in Japan.
What do I have to do with the burning theory? It turns out that twisting your stomach muscles burns fat just as well as burning calories and that twisting your belly muscle burn calories as well. (And the evidence actually supports these results: The theory that you should not eat for longer than 10 seconds is based on a study which found that twisting burn belly fat and that you should only ever eat during the middle of a round of twisting to burn fat.)
How does twisting burn fat?
As with any muscle or other tissue that you twist, the muscle contractions cause a small amount of heat (somewhere around 140 degrees Fahrenheit). This heat is used by your brain to cause you to feel full and increase your hunger hormone. These benefits are felt almost instantly. (You experience some pain, but nothing debilitating). After a few minutes, you feel more full and your hunger is reduced to normal.
This may have to do with how your brain works; instead of thinking about your feelings, you tend to perceive a lot, and then your body thinks you’re full before hunger is restored. This explains why you never feel full while twisting your belly, even though you are burning calories (and, by extension, the whole stomach).
Does twisting burn calories?
It turns out that you can actually burn some calories while eating with your stomach. For example, after 10 minutes, some people say they feel fuller than before when they eat. The same applies to when you twist your stomach muscles, but not if your stomach is closed: Some people say after 10 minutes, the tension gets so unbearable they can’t eat. This isn’t true for everyone – you’ve probably experienced it in your life, but it’s something to watch out for.
Even so, there is a limit to how quickly you can use this to burn calories. The muscle contractions in your stomach create heat, but as soon as the heat comes out, the body has to burn some calories for heat. There is a
